“A darkly intriguing psycho-romance, low-budget British film Unconditional is a smartly made tale of skewed obsessive love, driven by impressive performances bynewcomers Harry McEntire and Madeleine Clark. Its brooding style and crisp cinematography mark Bryn Higgins out as filmmaker to be watched.”
Mark Adams, chief film critic, Screen International
